This work contains about 100 texts with translation and commentary. In the style of a reader it draws attention to interesting topics such as: the decrees of the Indian king Ashoka Piyadassi, which contributed to the spread of Buddhism- texts documenting the palace administration of the Seleucid rulers or the history of the Parthian princes- the trade carried on by caravan of the Persian king Shapur and his defeat by Septimius Odaenathus in command of the Roman forces.
